I’ve had seasons in my life where I knew I was where God wanted me. But this past year in Haiti was more than just the right place -right time. In Haiti I felt God using all my strengths to their fullest. Even more amazing, He used my weaknesses as well. I could feel God working through me... I would see someone and my heart would explode with excitement and love for them – even if I barely knew them. My greatest desire was to spend as much time as possible with the Haitian people. I wanted to experience their culture, see how they lived, hear their stories, and share in their lives.
It quickly became clear God was using me to show His extraordinary, unfailing love to the Haitian people. His love opens doors, softens hearts, brings peace to the fearful and makes life worth living. To express this overflowing love from a distance is not enough… My heart longs to live in Haiti and continue the love ministry that God has called me to do. I know my time in Haiti is far from over; in fact, it has only begun!
I am currently waiting on God’s timing to return to Haiti. I would appreciate your prayers for patience and clear direction as to when and in what capacity God wants me to serve. To move to Haiti…not knowing when I’ll return… is an adventure I look forward to. People say, “Home is where the heart is” and, well, Haiti has captured my heart…. forever.
